When I first saw the railgun in Q3A, I thought:
|It looked scary; wouldn't want to run into someone holding it while I am in a dark ally.|
|It looked like the iMac version of that $20 vacuum cleaner my mom bought at K Mart.|
|Man, this would be a cool weapon to not be able to hit anybody with!|
|It was one nasty looking maritial aide.|
radium: I thought it was very nice. Ohhhh...
Hellchick: You think THAT'S one nasty looking marital aide, I think I
saw something in Fargo's office while I was at GameSpy that was even scarier.
Mix: I am among the ranks of the Railgun inept. Pity me.
Fargo: I thought how much fun it would be to send Lowtax pictures of
pharcyde: I think it would look even better if instead of shooting lame
rails if it instead shot out the deadly butter nuggets!!! RUN!
Lowtax: It's trail just looks... too messy. I don't like a sloppy railgun.
Er, wait a minute, I didn't just say that...
What's your opinion on the Quake 2 hand grenades?
|Love 'em! They're great for giving somebody
a power bitch slap!
|Like 'em. Very useful when you don't have a
|Neutral. I rarely use them, but it's nice
to know that the option is available.
|Ya mean it was possible to throw them by hand?!?!?!
radium: Hand grenades are very nice.
Hellchick: Baby, I'm the Princess of Pineapples, the Goddess of Grenades.
It's the best bitch slap in the world when someone trips over my exploding muffins
Lowtax: Lay off the sugar, Hellchick. Or is it the crack making you say
thing like that?
Mix: They should be elected president.
Fargo: I know some dude who uses nothing but hand grenades. And a sound
file hack that counts down until detonation...
pharcyde: Fragmaster said it hurts when I throw them at him.
What do you think of people who pirate Quake II?
|It's an "old" game anyhow, so it doesn't really matter.|
|Those who rip off id deserve nothing less than a horrible, grisly death.|
|What? Pirating? Uh... it's fine... but don't tell the cops.|
|I've NEVER paid for a game my entire LIFE.|
radium: These people are not very nice.
Hellchick: I think that people who pirate Quake II need to get some fashion
magazines, because eyepatches and parrots are SO 18th century.
Lowtax: Anybody pirating anything from id Software should be shot. In
the groin. Repeatedly. With a staple gun.
Mix: Argh matey! ....er....oops. Sorry about the obligatory pirate joke.
Fargo: C'mon, for a game you play as much as Quake II, pitch in the thirty
bucks. Mow someone's lawn, for God's sake!
pharcyde: NOW YOU'VE DONE IT!! JeffK and HaXoR are gonna 0wnz0r you!!
What Kind of exotic weapon would you like to see in a future first-person shooter?
|None of the above.|
|Some of the above, but I'm not telling which.|
|Bow and Arrow(s).|
|Bathroom Key Attached to a Large Wooden Block.|
|All of the above.|
radium: A pairing knife would be very nice.
Hellchick: I'd like to see the Lowtax Gun -- when you fire it, you realize
that you have no ammo and like it. Oh, and it eats a lot of Booberry cereal.
Lowtax: I'd like to see a Hellchick Gun - it shoots out steaming porno
Mix: Poop gun. Definitetly.
Fargo: A homing puppy.
pharcyde: BUTTER NUGGETS!!! Smooth but dangerous.
How much are you willing to (or do you) pay for an Internet connection worthy of LPB status (<100 ping)?
|$10-20 / month (yeah right).|
|$20-30 / month.|
|$30-40 / month.|
|$40-50 / month.|
|>$50 / month.|
|I would pay anything but I can't get a LPB connection where I live.|
|I'm too cheap and I scam my high speed connection at work/school while no one is around.|
|I have more important things to spend my money on!|
radium: Being an LPB is very nice.
Hellchick: Did I mention I currently live in an area of the country in
which the &%^$# antelope have a better internet connection than I have?
Lowtax: Only twice today.
Mix: I have T1 shoved up my left nostril. It's keen.
Fargo: I wish cable-modem was cheaper. :I
pharcyde: As soon as I start paying I'll let you know.
How much longer will Quake 1 be on your hard drive....?
|Until quake 3 arena comes out...|
|Until UT comes out...|
|It's been off since Quake 2.|
radium: Quake 1 is very nice.
Hellchick: It's been off since the Reagan Administration.
Lowtax: Quake 1 is good for atmosphere and single player... but I don't
like playing Q1 DM.
Mix: Quake forever.
Fargo: I only just chucked it last week when I switched systems. End
of an era? Quake 3 feels a lot like QuakeWorld, though, so I think it'll fill
pharcyde: CTRL-ALT-DEL is how I delete files right? Try it and let me
Do you think the Quake guys should release a new mission pack for Quake2?
|Nah, it's over with!
|I think they should release a mission pack
for Commander Keen.
radium: A new mission pack would be very nice.
Hellchick: I think they should release the Lowtax Mission Pack -- it's
got nothing and you like it. Oh wait, I already used that joke...
Lowtax: Hahahah, Hellchick, you saucy old beane. Thou shalt shut thy
hell up, wench!
Mix: Yes of course! Let's rehash an old property!
Fargo: Quake 2 is old tech! It's steam powered! There are no curved surfaces!
It's only in black and white! It's powered by large gears and vacuum tubes!
pharcyde: We need a mission pack for Chewz0r!! We can call it: The Hamlog
